The night before
The first day
Of our studying,
In my dreams.
We were in class
When suddenly you yawned
And put your head down
On your desk.
You fell asleep,
And when I tried
To wake you up,
You looked at me
With bloodshot eyes
You began coughing,
Choking on seemingly nothing,
And while your hands went red
With the blood from your insides,
Your face went pale,
And when you put your head back down,
I couldn't get you to wake up.
I still have time
Before my alarm goes off,
But I need to know now.
Will you be at school today?

Endless thoughts got pounded in my head
7 hours a day
Filling up my brain
Everything they thought I’d ever need
Minute math still pulls its weight sometimes
English helps me when I need a rhyme
Every class I had
I Am Your InevitableI’ll be the loser who won your heart.I Am Your Inevitable9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I’ll come out of the shadows,
I won't quit wearing eye shadow:
‘Cause I always look tired
from looking at these dumb cliques.
Their words make me go numb
and become less unique.
What you see is what you get.
I’m not trying to be a mystery,
I’m not playing hard to get.
It’s just that I don't trust anyone
SoulmatesYour soul intermingles with mine,Soulmates4 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Passing through the corridors of my heart.
You give me the time of day,
Speak a few words of nonsensical beauty.
The more I'm with you,
The more I start to think:
Perhaps we are made for each other,
My dear lover, perhaps it is true.
Perhaps I am the one for you.
(Though one can never be certain.)
You and your ways have become a part of me,
It's so easy how we work.
I heard once that to be in a good relationship,
You have to fight.
I don't think so.
We never fight.
In fact, I believe we've only had an argument
Perhaps you are the right one,
The one I've been waiting for.
I wouldn't know,
To be honest.
We are a conversation,
Talking back and forth,
Trading stories of the day.
You are a wonder,
So interesting and beautiful.
Your mind captivates me like no other,
And I hope mine does the same.
We are great minds,
Thinking alike, knowing each other.
And my soul reaches out to you,
As yours does as well, perhaps.
Maybe what we are is what they mean by
Heartstrings (USMC Year 2)Long ago, when we metHeartstrings (USMC Year 2)14 hours ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
We were only spools-
Of thread and string
Two lonely fools
Two different patterns
We were entirely enamored
We thought we'd last
But then felt like it never mattered
And one day, I had gone
I don't know if you cried
I sure did; couldn't stop
Even though I tried
We spoke of our lives
And my decision to leave
And oh so suddenly
Our strings began to weave
Soon enough, we sat on a quilt
We were rid of pain and guilt
We began to balter and sing
To the melody of our heartstrings

WishesLast night I dreamed I met a genie,Wishes9 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
He told me I had three wishes, but not to be greedy,
Because it would come with a price,
He said I'd have to word my wish very precise,
I thought about bringing peace to the world,
Other thoughts in my head then whirled.
I could make life perfect for everyone,
And make it something that couldn't be undone,
But...the bad stuff is what makes the good stuff;
Even better, makes it mean more than just fluff,
I thought then, long and hard about anything,
I could possibly wish for from the genie with a nose ring,
At long last after much pondering, I found;
The perfect wish that I hoped he wouldn't confound,
"I will not wish for more wishes than my three,
I will only wish for you to be free,"
The genie looked confused for a moment,
Asked me if I was sure of what I'd chosen,
I said I was, but he still paused,
Then he asked how my decision was caused,
I said I had no right to effect anyone;
Else's life but my own, so for them I had wishes none,
He smiled and s

After the winds had settled and the storm had passed.
I found myself beneath the oak tree at last.
The hours so vividly they passed when I reflected upon my first and last.
My dreaded ghost from the past.
The oak tree paled in comparison of the shadow this casts.
The fire burning deep in my heart for every moment we are apart.
The glistening spark the tender ember that lasts.
Unsure why the clouds and winds had to pass.
Surely our luck ran out at long last.
My sweet love my first and last.
Hard to forget about those fiery eyes.
Beneath this oak tree and the blue skies.
The kiss when the red sun was just to give rise.
The late night conversations that made us so wise.
The pain felt by the white lies.
The cries and the stream down our eyes.
The beginning of our demise!
My sweet love my first and last.
I wish you could be something that passed !

the streams are slowing
the moon's detached
The oceans cease their midnight spews
for moment's peace
to sigh at you
Apollo with with his hair dyed brown,
his skin is starved from day
Apollo who hides from the sun
alone in night subways
You've stolen all the village light and stashed then in your room.
There's not a place I wouldn't go just to follow you

Listen to her cry and see through all the lie, her soothing, calming laughter

His Poem to Me"When I first held your hand,His Poem to Me14 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I knew I was committing blasphemy.
When I first kissed your lips,
I knew I was condemned for daring to kiss a goddess.
When we first made love,
I knew I had tread upon territory
That no mortal soul should experience such heavenly bliss.
As I worship you from afar in this cursed lonely isolation,
Know that my heart,
And mind are constantly devoting every solitary devotional second
To you, my lovely Aphrodite.
Know that the deepest fires of Hades are naught
Compared to the passion I have for thee.
The depths of Poseidon's oceanic realm is
Fathoms shallower than my devotion to you.
All the beauty of Olympus and all of Zeus' domain
Is but naught compared to thee.
I am merely a mortal man,
But I humbly offer my very existence,
My very being,
To thee, wondrous Aphrodite."

Where I used to be,
And he says that he knows you by name.
You met at a party
In two-thousand eight,
And he says that you still look the same.
And he's drinking the vodka
That I used to drink.
And he's thinking the thoughts
That I used to think.
And I listen to echoes
Of all that I've said,
As he slowly drifts off
Towards the dead.
And I'm further from home
Than I've ever been.
Yes, I'm further and further
Yes, I'm further from home
Than I've ever been,
And I could use a friend.
So I bury the bottle
The ghost had drank from
'Neath the tree that I punched
On the day that you left.
And I'm chain-smoking cigarettes,
Thinking of you.
And I'm wishing you all of the best.
Yes, I'm wishing you all of the best.
Cause I'm further from home
Than I've ever been.
Yes, I'm further and further
Yes, I'm further from home
Than I've ever been,
And I'm in need of a friend.
Yes, I sure could use a friend.

Martha layed beneath the Summer Skies,
praying, while saying:
"I love him to much."
But she just didn't know a miracle was going to happen.
"I would do anything for you."
It started to rain. She began to cry, feeling as if her heart had been broken. But there he was, smiling, and looking her in the eye. And she knew she only had one chance.
"I love you with all my heart."
But he just said: "I would never cry with you."
And left her alone.
She sobbed, tears racing out of her eyes. But the next thing that happened changed her life.
"I would die for you, my beautiful Martha. I wouldn't just cry... I would die! I love you."

Kise x amnesiac! Reader Remember part 1He never thought that he would see her again. She was an elusive dream… The one star he’s never been able to obtain or wish upon. His whole life turned around when he saw her again, only to be crushed by reality. She was his first real friend… But dreams don’t come true unless you make them. His meaningless smile veiling his true, unstable emotions. She didn’t remember his face. His voice. Or his vulnerability…Kise x amnesiac! Reader Remember part 11 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
She sits alone on the beach she remembers nostalgically. Staring blankly with half lidded eyes. Staring at the sunset, as the vicinity frames her emotions. The wind combs through her silky (h/c) hair, her usual cheerful personality fading into a blank space as she digs her feet deeper into the soft white sand, and buries her head into her knees. Her eyes glowing in the dark space, as she remembers the unique friend she made on the beach she sits on. Her heart beats faster at the thought as she hugs her knees closer to her body, desperately try

The porcelain is pristine as fine china, a doll of china
Easily shattered in the beauty of fragility.
The Sakura petals dance around you
Endow you in their grace;
perfection is a paradox
like a mole or a scar
victorian necessity with the roots
of french mistresses.
We are whole when we are together
though we do not opposed quite’
As what I lack she bestows as a gift to the windows of soul.
With such elysium in the night.
The dragon is a riot - alarmingly tragically comedic
The soul emits from the smoke
Hermaphroditic and fay
Mysticism knows no boundary
A thread of fate spills out on the wind like a drug
A DMT kiss rides a wave of the ten; dreams past
The witch flies past the moon
Humans and angels aren’t allowed to fall in love
Luna and green haired
Under you, under you
Elfin eared and elysian
Transcendence and time hold too
Gothically archaic in the wing of aesthetic
Ineffably yearning, for the hands to clasp

por toda la vida,
en tus alas abrazado
sirviéndome de guía.
Ojala entendieras este fuego,
que ha vuelto cenizas mi ego
y que ha quemado todo lo que me rodea
de tan ígnea emoción que me quema.
Y que hacer cuando muestras calor
y tu alma parece llena de color?
Si cada vez que te toco
todo el color se desvanece
y en tu alma el frió aparece.
A mi corazón vuelves loco.
Pero no importa que estés a su lado.
Mientras el feliz te haga,
tenerte a mi lado,
con un momento basta.

I cry roses
The petals slowly falling from my cheeks
White tears of loneliness
Petals, bruised and cut
Scars of emotion
I bleed roses, too
They seep from my wrists,
Crimson petals pouring from every orifice
Graceful in their tragedy
I’m full of flowers
I want to let them out
But I will waste them if I do
Then you come along
You pick up all my petals
You put them in my hair
And say, “Give me your flowers”
“I will make beautiful things out of your sadness”
“I will make you happy”
Now, the roses bloom in full
They heal my scars
They dry my tears
Beautiful buds flourishing from every part of me
You keep them and make beautiful things
Out of my happiness
I kept the first bloom
And named it after you

And your clear eyes of mellow light,
Twin gateways into heavens garden.
In your silence you sing hymns to me
Whilst healing my heart and my soul.
You are natures finest gift to us all.
Born from loves passionate embrace
Like a flower in the meadowland of dreams,
You mould yourself into so many disguises
But behind the mask you are growing wings,
I have to shield my mind when I look at you
For I may fall into the ocean of pure joy
Never to return to my earthly life again

As a reply
To my question,
I had asked
After Thanksgiving break.
"What's Stress Month?"
As you continued
To fiddle nervously
With your pencil.
Is any month
That holds finals.
Aren't you stressed
I shook my head,
Then laughed a little
When your eyes got wide.
I started carefully,
"Since you're so worried,
We could maybe
Much more often?"
You were silent
As you always are
When you think,
And then you nodded
Not even bothering
To stop smiling
When class started.
